Day 19 - Forgiveness
Thank You for Your forgiveness.
The bible teaches us that if we confess our sins Jesus not only forgives our sins but He purifies us. In other words, Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness. Jesus is the filter that can cleanse us from all the past mistakes we have made. All our sins have been washed away. Although we may have to face the consequences of our poor decisions here on earth, Jesus cleanses us and purifies us the moment we confess and surrender our lives to Him. Stop looking at your past mistakes. Forgiveness is liberating and can free you from bitterness, shame, guilt, anger, and rage that you may be feeling. In a car, there is a reason why the windshield is much larger than the rearview mirror, because we are to stay focused on what’s in front of us. If you confessed your sins to God, He doesn't hold your mistakes against you. Don't let your past rob you of the best days that are still ahead of you. You have been forgiven. Now offer that forgiveness to those who have hurt you as well. Let’s thank God today for forgiveness.
God, I thank You today that You don't hold my past against me. I ask You today that You would help me to walk in that freedom of knowing that my sins are forgiven. I also ask that You would help me to forgive those who have hurt me. I’m trusting You today to help me forgive others. Thank you for purifying me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
